'Extreme Makeover' homeowner struggles with lien, code violations

Sadie Holmes thought it was a blessing when ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition built her a 7,000-square-foot home and office for her charity in 2006.

Now she's struggling to keep her nonprofit afloat, and she may end up losing the $400,000 home if she can't pay a $29,000 county lien placed on the property after months of code violations racked up.

Read the entire story HERE.

Be advised that the law states that a code enforcement lien cannot be foreclosed on a homestead. Fla. Statute 162.09(3) states "No lien created pursuant to the provisions of this part may be foreclosed on real property which is a homestead under s. 4, Art. X of the State Constitution. The money judgment provisions of this section shall not apply to real property or personal property which is covered under s. 4(a), Art. X of the State Constitution."
